Mac Compatibility

ACCA software for Mac recommends the use of an Intel-based MAC equipped with OS X Leopard (10.5) or higher.

ACCA software products have been tested using VMWare, Parallels, Virtual Box and Boot Camp virtualizers running Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.

The correct and efficient functioning of our software products also depend on the quality of the Windows virtualizer environment and the type of hardware in use.



  • Edificius cannot be used with the Virtual BOX Windows virtualizer environment.
  • Real Time Rendering features do not function correctly when using Windows virtualized environments.
